11/11 must have done this quiz before, as to their origins, well it doesn't matter, English above all other human languages, steals words when it finds a better ones elsewhere.

I'm British and have never heard of any of those phrases! Some sound as though they may be Cornish or from Somerset.

6/11 and lucky to get that. The only one I knew for sure was petrichor, which is used here in the States. Just in the last couple of months, I've read an article explaining the reason why the earth smells that way after a rain.
